Towneley Hall admission policy

A new admission pricing policy has been introduced at Towneley Hall, Burnley.

From 1st January 2017 all adults are being asked to pay an admission fee to enter the historic hall. Previously the charge only applied to adults living outside Burnley borough.

The new policy means that all adult visitors are asked to pay a £5 charge which buys a 12-month pass, allowing them to visit the hall as many times as they want over a year from the date of purchase.

Students and children aged 17 and under can continue to visit for free.

Residents deliver their verdict on council services

The results of the latest survey of residents across Burnley have been revealed and provide a snapshot of people’s views on a wide range of council services.

The annual survey, carried out through the Citizens’ Panel and social media, attracted almost 650 responses. The results will be used to help shape Burnley Council’s future work.

Parks and sports facilities, the local countryside, and good neighbours/people are considered to be the best things about living in Burnley. Litter and dog fouling were named the biggest problems.

Other highlights included:

Burnley Local Plan

Burnley Council officers are continuing to make progress on work to develop the new Local Plan which will help shape the borough over the next two decades.

It is a long and complex process to create one of the most important documents the council produces, securing investment in new homes and jobs in the borough.

There are, at this stage, a few outstanding technical issues that need to be resolved. As a result a decision has been made to re-schedule the dates on which the executive and full council were due to discuss the Local Plan. The new dates are to be confirmed.

Pub landlord fined for late night noise

A pub landlord has been fined after complaints about late-night music blaring out and disturbing neighbours.

Christopher Toothill, licensee of the Sun Inn at Harle Syke, Burnley, pleaded guilty at Burnley Magistrates’ Court to two offences of unlicensable activity after a prosecution was brought by Burnley Council.

Following complaints from local residents, officers from the Pennine Night Time noise nuisance team monitored the pub over two weekends in June and July and witnessed live music being played beyond permitted hours.
